Valentine 1 audio via Bluetooth

Recommended Posts

I'm still using an old Autocom wired comm setup, but I'm sure I'll eventually go bluetooth, especially if I get one of the fancy new bikes. If I do, how can I get audio from my V1 radar detector into my bluetooth headset? It looks like Sena's SM10 might do the job, along with carrying music from my iPod nano. But I see that it really likes to be battery powered, rather than bike powered, and there seem to be problems with getting everything to sync up on power-up. Is anybody out there using an SM10 or some other bluetooth hub? How is it working for you?

I use a SM10 on my K1600GT. I have the V1 and the bikes audio patched in and the SM10 is paired into my Sena 10U. The V1 has priority on the SM10 and overrides the audio. Works great.

 

My phone is also paired into the 10U. Generally everything pairs up without issue. Once in a while I have to turn off the SM10 and turn it back on to get the pairing in the correct sequence but not very often and not a big deal. Very satisfied with the set up.

 

Rocket moto sells a modified charger for the SM10 that is hard wired to the bike, no charging worries with the SM10.

I loved my autocom for years, but replacement parts were getting hard to get so I decided to take the plunge on my BMW K1300GT. I ended going with a Sena 20S and Sena SR10 Hub. I connect my Escort to the SR10 bluetooth hub via a shielded mono 3.5mm male to male cord. I put in an 3.5mm inline noise filter on the line as well for when I power the Sena SR10 hub I was getting buzzing. You may have to try a couple brands of cords for the SR10 input ports are a bit small and snug and not all cables will fit. Ran power to hub via battery and everything is great. Just ran it 500 miles without issue. Pairing can be fun sometimes with Iphone but once connected great. I do miss the music clarity of the wired system but its not horrible via bluetooth. I run custom molded speaker ear plugs off Sena 20s. Its nice being wire free and joining others in conversation on rides. Hope it works out for you.

I get a buzzing noise too from my Zumo 660, for which I use wired ear buds. Is the in-line noise filter powered?

Can you post a link for the one you used please?

Thanks!

I tried several like the one below.

I had several in my stock and the one that worked the best the label was worn, but said "Electronic Connection". Also watch where you run power wires. I hooked it all up, put ear plugs in so I could listen and try moving wires until it was quiet.

Might that have been "Electrical Connection" rather than "Electronic Connection"? Could it be this one?
